So, I went through the Battle Subway, only to have my team beaten by a -4 Manectric critical hit Thunderbolt against my Jellicent, of all things to happen. So, here's a run-down of my team, and it's a decent one, as it got me to Battle 39, until the above happened. Jellicent @ Choice Specs Modest|Water Absorb 252 HP/252 SpD/6 HP Hydro Pump Ice Beam Energy Ball Shadow Ball He works well as a special sponge and a decent attacker. It's better with 252 SpD than 252 HP EVs, mainly because he takes just a bit less from special attacks, and when going against Timid Life Orb Thundurus, Thunderbolt has a smaller chance of actually OHKO'ing Jellicent, allowing a definite OHKO against 6 HP Thundurus with Choice Specs Ice Beam. Energy Ball is for Gastrodon and the occasional Lapras, which tends to carry Thunder. Hydro Pump is for large damage with STAB and Choice Specs to anything that doesn't resist it. Now, with a Pokemon that can take special hits, I've also made a Pokemon that can also sponge physical hits, and he does a very good job at doing so, too. Gligar @ Eviolite Impish|Sand Veil 252 HP/252 Def/6 Spd Earthquake Guillotine Toxic Roost I had to give up Immunity for Roost, but it's totally worth it, since he's not evolving into Gliscor anytime soon. He can sponge physical hits like a boss, and stall with Toxic+Roost, and then there's the occasional critical hit. To some opponent Pokemon I cannot stall, Guillotine does the trick nicely, and it actually hits more often than I'm used to. Sometimes I think that %30 accuracy is misleading. Scizor @ Steel Gem Adamant|Technician I forgot the exact EVS, but it had some HP, max Attack, and some Special Defense. Swords Dance Pursuit Bug Bite Bullet Punch Swords Dance on something that's not very threatening, and proceed to sweep. +2 STAB Steel Gem Technician Bullet Punch does a number to many Pokemon that do not resist. Big Bite can steal useful berries, he's also stolen Salac Berries, which is very useful as it makes Scizor's job better knowing he doesn't need to rely on priority to launch an attack first. Pursuit is for...super effective damage on Ghost-types. As of typing, I have finished Battle 14, and I'm going to bed now, it's just after midnight, and I am crazy tired for some reason.
